There is a person who loves miniskirts more that me and it’s got to be Alexa Chung, any season any reason to get her pins out! Wearing a short skirt is a nice way to tell the cold to back off and liven up your Autumn look. It creates a contrast of volume when worn with a chunky knit, and balances the whole silhouette out. I have picked tweed as my go to winter fabric, you will be to wear them with any knitwear and totally couldn’t resist an occasional metallic which works great for those winter evenings when you need a bit of ‘umph’!
